“The trouble with unemployment is that the minute you wake up in the morning you’re on the job”. — Slappy White
Job search is the job you have when you are between jobs. Like any other jobs,
- It needs to be a full time effort (30-40 hours a week consistently) if you want to achieve any level of success quickly.
- It requires a certain set of skills that are developed over time. No one is born good at this, but anyone can learn to master it.
- You need to make yourself accountable, since you are also your own boss in this “job.” Consider getting a “boss buddy” (a topic of a future post)
- The skills you build are as important as the result you achieve, because the result you achieve (finding a job) is only helpful to this effort, but the skills you learn for job search can help you a life time.
What can you do to fill up 30-40 hours a week consistently you may ask? Well, check out the Job Search Checklist. Good Luck out there!
